It happened for sure...... and it was a beautiful wedding full of fun and laughter. I can finally blog about all the fun wedding things we did.... but as for pictures, I don't have any right now, but if you go to my sister's blog, she has posted the ones she took.
She decorated 3 of them in chocolate icing and sprinkles so that our houseguests to test the cupcakes before wedding... and the girls approved.
At the beginning of the last week before the wedding, Michelle gathered butter, icing sugar and pure vanilla and created 10 batches of icing which she stored in the fridge. Her plan was to assemble the cupcake tower on the friday night while we were setting up the reception hall. She took the icing out of the fridge on Friday afternoon so it would be soft enough to pipe....
Poor thing, during the dinner, and clean up, someone put it back in the fridge where it turned into concrete. Not a spoon, nor electric mixer would soften the problem. So, all the cupcakes, pink flowers, and icing were hauled back home for a "morning of the wedding" assembly party. Michelle got up bright and early, and she and her aunt Kelly started piping a big fat swirl on each little cupcake and they were all iced and packed in boxes within an hour. At noon, when the reception hall was unlocked, Kelly, Marie, Aubrey and I headed to the mess with the fondant flowers, the tower, the trays and the cupcakes and we assembled the whole thing for Michelle. She wanted to be the one to assemble it all herself, but time ran short and she had a hair appt with all her girls at noon. The top part of the cake when through two setbacks before a piece of fondant covered the tall topper good enough, with the help of some decorative flower patches. Humidity is a cake decorator's enemy! All in all, the tower was cute and tasty, and they enjoyed serving all there guests. There were less than 20 left over, leaving enough for the caterer and barstaff to share in the treats.
Sorry it took so long to get this out, but I didn't take one picture, so I had to gather pictures from friends and family. Michelle and Scott will be back on Friday.... I will blog a few other fun things we did before I can actually get some pics in.. remember.. please go to my sister's site to see some of her pics.
